Does Your Team Need A Full Stack Developer?
If there’s one constant in the world of IT development, it’s that the pace of change will continue to accelerate as end user demands grow more complex. Global levels of change are raising expectation levels across the board, so it’s little wonder that full stack developers are a welcome addition to most project teams now. Your application will go through several phases before being ready for public release; UX design to create a usable layout for the intended product, front-end development to turn the code into something public-facing,a nd back-end development, which deals with code on the server side. Including a full stack developer means that you have someone on the team who has the capability to contribute to each stage, from the server side and it’s frameworks through the parts of an application which are directly user-facing. This oversight and ability to switch between tasks can bring an appreciation of different perspectives and how they can conflict or find synergies – this can be incredibly useful throughout the lifecycle of a given development. There is also a universalism gained when a team member can understand almost any code. Often a full stack developer can complement the work of specialists and bring the project together. Every project is different, so often it’s a process of weighing up the needs of the particular application you’re working on and assessing the value of the contribution you think a full stack developer could make.
